During a performance at Yoshi’s in Oakland, the late legendary Texas wordsmith Guy Clark asked the question: Is there a synonym for ‘Thesaurus’? He added that he never found one, but the word ‘lexicon’ was about as close as he could find. The lexicon, the words and phrases used on a daily basis, constantly evolves as words may go in and out of vogue. There is no decisive governing body determining which words to use or not use, but I sometimes wish there were. Words often need to be dropped, either from overusage, laziness, or because of misrepresentations of their true meaning. With the above in mind, I humbly submit a list of words that should be banned in the New Year: TRANSPARENCY — This word was elevated in the common lexicon under President Obama, who vowed to have the most transparent administration in history. After witnessing the misuse of the word during his tenure, any liberal politician who uses it should be tarred,…(Read Full Article)
There is still some drama to be had even after 304 electors voted for President Trump on December 19th. That day is January 6th 2017 when each states votes will have been sealed and sent to the President of the U.S. Senate. The electoral votes received from each state are to be read aloud to both Houses of Congress.
Congress then has to “officially count” the electoral votes.
Vice President Joe Biden will preside over the electoral vote count.
The left and the media (but I repeat myself) will be urging people not only to call Congressmen and Senators to stop certification of Trumps election victory, but will also bus in protestors to demonstrate and perform another bout of “Civil Disobedience” in front of the capital building in the forlorn hope that one member of the House and one member of the Senate will object to the certification of the vote, with the intent that all members of Congress “discuss” the many crazy conspiracy theories and media generated “Trump issues”, find Trump “not worthy” and ultimately decide to install a different candidate as POTUS.
We just witnessed the left and the media spending weeks attempting to stifle the will of the voters in the run up to the electoral college vote itself. I don’t think they are going to stop any time soon, and this is obviously their next step in attempting to delegitimize Trumps presidency.
Here is how the Electoral College votes certification process could shake out if the leftists and media get their way:
Lawmakers can technically object … in writing, with objections signed by at least one House and one Senate member … to individual electoral votes or entire states’ results. If the House and Senate support that objection, the vote or votes in question are thrown out.
That has never happened. But that minor detail wont stop the leftist protestations.
After the votes are counted, the results are final. Unless one or two states results are “Thrown Out” – to the tune of 35 Trump Elector votes. With 35 or more “non-certified” Trump electoral votes, it would mean that the House and Senate would have to vote for a president just as if neither candidate had reached 270 electoral votes in the general election.
Trump would still be voted in and would still be officially set for his inauguration at noon on January 20th. But the media narrative would be set for the next four years that Trump’s presidency is illegitimate and that he was “Selected not Elected” just like the left caterwauled about George Bush after his defeat of Al Gore.
Knowing the left and the media as we all do now, there is little doubt that they will make every effort to drum up more leftist protestations and demonstrations in order to make one last ditch attempt to prevent Donald Trump’s swearing into the office …
… but keep in mind that we also know how things have gone for them up till now. I predict that not only will the leftist voter suppression methods again not work, This particular trickery might even mean that congress could possibly throw out California’s electoral college votes entirely, thus awarding Trump the “popular vote” along with the Electoral College victory.
Every attempt at Trump delegitimization up to this point has backfired spectacularly. This one could too, and just as badly.
Regardless, if the Electoral College certification is front page news, and publically protested and fought … Ultimately it will only mean one thing; Trump supporters get one more chance to WIN!
Olbermann Proposes ‘Passive-Aggressive’ Means of ‘Resistance’: ‘Never Address Trump as President’
From what I can tell, Trump will never need to worry about Keith or any of the network media addressing him as anything. They’re not actually invited to the presser. Trump isn’t showing up for Sunday talk shows.
All Keith Olbermann has left is trolling Trump on Twitter and maybe an occasional viewer seeing him say something about Trump on cable. Olbermann’s ratings indicate that the only people watching his show are some other network and media people. If not for them, none of us would even know he said anything at all!
Keith Olbermann is just another member of Trump’s audience … Just like everyone else.
I’m still not tired of all this WINNING!
M. Simon over at Sparta Report found this interesting tidbit of information:
Gail Combs alerted me to this story: Ayn Rand-acolyte Donald Trump stacks his cabinet with fellow objectivists. Well isn’t that interesting? Yes. It is.
Well, let me do some excerpting and analyzing.
THE BIG IDEA: Donald Trump has decided to risk a confirmation fight, officially nominating ExxonMobil chief executive Rex Tillerson to be secretary of state this morning. Tillerson and Trump had no previous relationship, but the Texas oilman and the New York developer hit it off when they met face to face. One of the things that they have in common is their shared affection for the works of Ayn Rand, the libertarian heroine who celebrated laissez-faire capitalism.
“Atlas Shrugged” was big in my High School (Omaha Central High) the year I graduated – ’62. Quite a few kids were carrying it in the halls that year. I thought it rather odd. I did not look into it until many years later.
This has now officially become a trend. Trump is turning not just to billionaires but Randians to fill the cabinet:
Andy Puzder, tapped by Trump last week to be secretary of labor, is an avid and outspoken fan of Rand’s books.
One profiler last week asked what he does in his free time, and a friend replied that he reads Ayn Rand. He is the CEO of CKE Restaurants, which is owned by Roark Capital Group, a private equity fund named after Howard Roark. Puzder, who opposes increases in the minimum wage and wants to automate fast food jobs, was quoted just last month saying that he encouraged his six children to read “Fountainhead” first and “Atlas Shrugged” later.
That is quite encouraging. Trump is inclined to nominating and associating with people who prefer smaller government. I have been one of those guys since I joined in with the Libertarians in 1988. Since 9/11 I have been more of a libertarian. But still…
And it looks like there is a guy who may be brought back into the fold. At least he is not unfamiliar with the ideas Rand espoused.
